Quantum information science with laser-dressed atoms

Thursday February 4, 2021
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Michael Martin, Los Alamos National Lab
 Series:  CQuIC Seminars
 Abstract:  Neutral atoms coupled to highly-excited Rydberg levels are an emerging platform for quantum science, with promising applications in quantum computing, quantum simulation, and quantum sensing. In this presentation, I will highlight some of the recent advances in this field, including work towards demonstrating a Molmer-Sorensen-like gate between two neutral atoms. I will further discuss our work at LANL to develop Rydberg atom-based emulators for studying quantum magnetism, with tunable interactions and geometry, as well as work towards entangling nuclear spins in 87Sr atoms.
